A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in November, and this place was great. It held high standard, was tidy, had everything we needed and more, and also a lovely garden. Christine, the owner, was very kind and helpful before we arrived and we felt that everything was taken good care of.

Beautiful, cozy cottage in the country

  • 5 of 5

Christine met us at the cottage and, we had gotten lost enroute and were quite late and she was so patient and kind. We enjoyed the beautiful cottage and the wonderful history of Normandy! Christine gave us great recommendations of the surrounding areas. We loved the lay out of the house and the community it was located in. The cottage had everything we needed and we would highly recommend this cottage to our fiends and family. We would love to return again one day and stay in the peaceful cottage with the wonderful, friendly hostess.

This Caen region region's cottage was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults had one of the best vacation experiences ever in Christine's cottage. The setting was country and pastoral but near city conveniences. The cottage of three bedrooms and dining/living space was relaxing, extremely clean and very calming in an otherwise busy bustling life. The VRBO description was point on perfect.

We enjoyed the convenience to Normandy beaches, French historical and WWII historical sites. We enjoyed a morning walk to Fred's meat market and Rosemary's bakery for Normandy bacon, coffee and fresh croissants.

Christine and Gilles are delightful new friends! We cherish their friendship and hospitality and look forward to many years of friendship.

i can't imagine how we could have enjoyed six days more than we did at this special Cairon, France home and family.

When you go, be certain to see the ancient cathedral just ten minutes north in the countryside and the beautiful castle nearby. Take a walk in the countryside.

Relax, take in the restoring fresh air and relax even with conveniences of home.

The cottage...was very well supplies and maintained. Christine is so pleasant and closely to assist we felt an immediate friendship.

With full agreement of my family, we commend this home to you! It's one of the best kept secrets in Normandy and a special place to restore.

Super location.

  • 4 of 5

Christine was a highly responsive and helpful owner with wine and pastry as welcome gifts. The house is in a quiet, beautiful rural location near all WWII sites. Three BRs with MBR (double bed) down, two x 2 singles up with one bath on the main floor. It's on a quiet street in a quiet village fifteen minutes from the busy city centre of Caen. One overwhelming (Coras) and one good grocery store within ten minutes drive. Nice LR with great TV. The compact, well-equipped kitchen is bright and tidy. Christine provides a personable engineer husband, lots of local info and an area map (Yes!). A yard, a BBQ and firm but comfortable beds make this a nice retreat from which to visit the local sites. Wifi is fast but the (iPad) signal is weak upstairs and in the LR. Would return and we recommend.

Accueil chaleureux dans un gîte fonctionnel

  • 5 of 5

Quel accueil ! Nous nous sommes sentis très vite à l'aise dans ce gîte, grâce à toutes les attentions qui avaient été apportées (matériel pour nourrisson mis à disposition, jeux pour enfant, pommes du jardin et cidre en guise de bienvenue, etc...).

Le gîte est très bien équipé, vaste et fonctionnel; le jardin est entretenu, clos et très agréable. Dans un environnement très calme.

Adresse à recommander !

Super sejour

Réservation effectuée en derniére minute du matin pour le soir même.

Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis dans ce gîte parfaitement équipé et bien situé pour visiter les principaux lieux touristiques de la Normandie.

Nous avons apprécié les petits cadeaux d'accueil : délicieuse tarte à la rhubarbe et confiture maison.

Merci à christine pour son accueil !
